OnePlus to give consumers a second chance to pre-order the OnePlus One

Besides deciding that an apology was in order, OnePlus has decided to give consumers a second chance to pre-order its flagship phone. So on November 17th, starting at 10am EST, another OnePlus One pre-order period will begin.
OnePlus has learned from the previous pre-order period. More servers will be enabled this time around, and more inventory will be available. Other problems popped up, and will be fixed. OnePlus had accidentally labeled all Canadian orders as being destined for the U.S. Some consumers pre-ordered one unit, and ended up on the hook for two. And some never received a confirmation email.
If you were unable to pre-order the OnePlus One that you've been dying for, you are going to get another shot at it on November 17th. As we pointed out, OnePlus has made some changes to the pre-order process which improve your chances of reserving a phone this time around.
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 3100 mAh

Yes true. Even after 6 months of its release, I dont think even 10k people were able to get the phone. Lack of planning. Maybe funds too. And too much expectations

The price is the only saving grace for this phone. It's the only thing that keeps people even the least bit interested in this device. OnePlus completely botched this pre-order. If I'm a customer, why would I want to wait until the 17th when better devices will be readily available by then. I feel badly for those who actually wanted this device but couldn't snag one. I have Verizon, so I'll be getting the Nexus 6 and Note 4. The OnePlusOne isn't even an option for me.

Looks like the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is really doing a great job and other manufacturers are starting to feel the heat, Samsung released the Note 4 earlier than it was supposed to be released and now OnePlus suddenly got generous with Pre-orders. One more thing....I'm ditching my Note 3 for an iPhone 6 Plus in few hours.

Ferrari ? Not really bro. I got the Exynos Note 3(SM-N900), and it was the worst mistake I have every did. This phone overheats like crazy, I don't know if you read my story here on phoneArena but in short I have suffered from some minor burns because of this phone. And because crappy Samsung decided not to release the documentations for this processor, I wasn't able to get a decent custom ROM. Battery life is what I like on this phone and I'm looking forward to compare it to the one on the 6 Plus. Yeh I wasn't able to get the 6 Plus yet .... Can't find one

OP are a scam company. I initially jumped on the bandwagon, chasing invites, participating in forums, entering competitions and all that hoopla... all for naught. The whole system is a scam to garner interest and free advertising for a product you can't actually get. I ended up ordering an LG G3, new, for $90 more than the OPO. 24 hours later it was in my hand. $90 is a small price to pay for proper support, no waiting and not having to deal with that awful CM11.
